International Community Day 2017

On October 19th our school celebrated the International Community Day. Its goal is to promote intercultural awareness, one of the IB fundamental concepts. We share information about our own culture and learn about traditions and cultures of other countries. During this event we had the opportunity to "taste" school diversity through costumes, music, languages and delicious food.

This year we had representatives of 16 countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, China, Croatia, Hungary, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Korea, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Sweden, Turkey and Ukraine.

Our International Community Day was enriched with two corners, one of them being the Community Corner organised by the MYP3 students in order to raise funds for our community projects, and the second one with the home-made products by our School Cooperative "That's it!".

We would like to thank you for supporting our Community projects. Thanks to your generous donations MYP3 students collected 5.000 HRK. All the funds raised will be used for funding the communities whose need we have chosen to address.

We had a lot of fun because we tried new food, met new people, saw many wonderful national costumes and reunited with former Matija Gubec students. Although next year we will not be a part of Matija Gubec we will make sure not to miss this annual community day.
